Simple Decorative Box

Simple Decorative Box

Because I’m going to CHA this weekend, I’m sharing some of the make and takes I did at CHA over the summer. If you’ve missed any, go check out the Crystal Christmas Tree Card, Fast Floral Necklace, Super Fast Button Ring, Spray-Dye Scarf and Mini Quote Canvas. The project I’m sharing with you today was super fun to make. It was one of the last make and takes I did at summer CHA, and I just got to sit at the Faber Castell Booth, rest my feet, and play for a while! Really, the best part of going to a craft show, if you ask me.

To make your own Simple Decorative Box, you need:
Plain Box
Faber Castell Gelatos
Makeup Sponge
Fabric Trim
Faber Castell Marker
Stamp with scripty text
Wooden Bird
Old Book Page

Start by spreading out the gelato onto a piece of scrap paper.
